Today’s larger homes have multi-car garages and lots of space for DIY’ing and gardening equipment. I’ve gathered a list of some of the more essential tools to consider for your garage space
Tired of finding someone dragged their dirty or muddy shoes into the house? Or dripping wet closes leaving a puddle in your kitchen? These fantastic storage lockers are great for hanging dirty or wet clothes and shoes, and have extra storage for tools.
The kitchen table or island is no place for DIY projects – order an inexpensive lighted work bench (or link multiple benches together) to have a dedicated space for projects, repairs, and storing tools or products that should not be inside the house.
Most garage floors are hard concrete and not the most comfortable places to stand for long periods of time while working on your projects – consider a cushioned floor mat to help make standing in place more comfortable and easier on your back.
Is your garage a little dim? Not enough light to work on your projects or use tools safely? We found this interesting shop light fixture that brightens up the entire garage space, and allows you to aim the lights where you need the most brightness. A fixture like this mounts into your regular garage ceiling outlet and can improve the usability of the entire space.
Is the refrigerator or freezer in your kitchen large enough to handle all of the groceries your family needs? With fewer trips to the supermarket being our new reality, having more grocery storage is essential – so an extra dedicated freezer and/or refrigerator in the garage is a great idea for storing extra groceries and essentials so you just need to check the garage when you run out of eggs, milk or meat – and not make an extra trip to the supermarket.
When the floor and walls of your garage get overcrowded with seasonal boxes, sporting equipment, or items needing long term storage, it’s a good idea to get them off the floor to protect these items from moisture, decay or becoming hiding spaces for pests. These ceiling mounted storage racks add a second level to your garage so you can keep the floor clean and more space for your cars, tools and gardening equipment.
I hope this information offers a little inspiration for upgrading your garage space – it’s not just a place to park cars or stack boxes, with a little imagination, it can be so much more useful!
